    You're pretty close on the guess.

    I think it depends on the severity of the case, right?

    Some time ago, I sent my brother's touch to the Apple Service Provider in Petaling Jaya (where I live) and the issue with his unit was the KO'ed unlock slider, i.e. a fully functional iPod which cannot be accessed... The unit was handed over to the SP on a Monday (if i'm not mistaken) and three days later, the SP called me and informed that the replacement unit could be collected already...

    That was a pleasant surprise, I never thought that getting a replacement unit could be that fast!

    well i dont think its that severe of a problem to get a new ipod.

    but the reason i sent it to apple was because the display looked REALLY yellow compared to other ipod touch 2g and i had a couple of dead pixls too.
    I read that the yellow tint was normal but after comparing it to like 10 other ipod touch 2gs and even some iphone 3gs it looked really bad.(they were also on the same brightness settings)
